Velvet Crush


Velvet is the perfect material for Christmas and I have been ordering it in by the bucket-load. As you’re probably aware… because I haven’t shut up about it! I have been saving for the CHANEL slingbacks and so I haven’t been buying like usual. These two items however, were just too much of a bargain to pass on and I know you guys love a bargain buy!




This navy skirt is so gorgeous and feels so luxurious. It is perfect for the Christmas party season but it’s also really nice dressed down too.

In my head I was planning all the different types of shoes that will go with this skirt. Black over the knee boots, heels or converse… all look fabulous, trust me I’ve tried all options. Each shoe gives the outfit a new look and I love them all!

The colour of this skirt is also a talking point, because of the velvet the deep navy really stands out and Zoe (my photographer) and I had so much fun picking backgrounds to show off the stunning colour.


This skirt had caught my eye on a bloggers Instagram. It looked really expensive, so I was shocked to see where it was from. MISSGUIDED… I mean can you believe it, the quality is excellent and I think that it looks like a luxury piece when partnered correctly.

The skirt is £20 and I managed to pick it up when they had their 50% off day, so I paid £10 for it – BARGAIN!

Top – Wolford // Skirt – MISSGUIDED // Shoes – Public Desire



Once again I saw these styled by a fantastic blogger and couldn’t resist. Hunt for Styles had styled them so beautifully and made them look irresistible. Bloggers really are taking over!

I had heard a lot about Public Desire but I had never purchased before. I know that they are an online brand that keep up with the fashion shoe styles for great prices.

This shoe is something I would NEVER have bought had I not seen it on Gina. They were styled to perfection and once again I needed them! Gina wore them with the frayed hem jeans and I think that is the best look for these shoes. I didn’t want to copy the exact look, so I thought… why not go velvet on velvet!


They aren’t the comfiest shoe in the world and being a little bit of a shoe snob… they smell cheap but they were good shoes. I was impressed with the material and the packaging for a shoe worth less than £40!

Thinking about it, I don’t think I have bought a non-luxury heel in about 7 years. When I think of a fashion staple like this, it’s better not spending the earth. I know that when this style goes out of fashion, that’s ok… because I didn’t spend a fortune on them!

These boots have obviously been incredibly popular as they now come in 5 colours, these ones are champagne.

 They graced the cobbled streets of Notting Hill and took centre stage when we found the perfect flooring!


Love Life,
